Tort cu mousse de piersici, musetel si mure (Peach, Chamomile & Blackberry Mousse Cake)

Share


 
        Din cauza caldurii maxime ce a cuprins Toronto saptamana trecuta, cand s-au simtit si peste 49 grade Celsius, trebuie sa recunosc ca mi-a scazut de tot dorinta de a trebalui prin bucatarie, de aceea am lipsit putin de pe blog...dar I'm back now si cu ce altceva daca nu cu un tort super fin si aromat de vara ce te face realmente sa visezi! Desi pozele nu mi-au iesit tocmai bine, tortul a fost o minunatie, combinatia de arome este absolut divina!
        Because of the hot weather from last week, when in some days it felt like 49 degrees C, I have to admit that my desire to cook was pretty absent, that's why I didn't post anything for a while now...but I'm back now and what else could I post if not a gorgeous cake recipe, a very elegant and flavorful summer cake that makes you dream! though the pictures aren't really good, this cake was wonderful, the flavor combination is divine!

Ingrediente/Ingredients:

1 blat de tort din 3 oua pt o tava de 23 cm diametru, puteti vedea aici cum se face/1 sponge cake for a 23 cm round cake pan, you can see here how it's made

250 g mure/250 g blackberries
2 piersici/2 peaches
1 lingura flori de musetel/1 tablespoon with chamomile buds
60 ml apa/60 ml water
500 ml frisca lichida/500 ml liquid cream
20 g gelatina/20 g gelatine
80 g zahar/80 g sugar
fructe pt decor/fruits for decoration

Cum se face/How it's made:


Mai intai facem pandispanul din 3 oua. Il lasam sa se raceasca pe un gratar si ne apucam de mousse-uri.
Mousse-ul de piersici si musetel:
Fierbem 60 ml apa cu florile de musetel 2-3 minute.
We first make the sponge cake. We let it cool on a rack and we start making the mousses.
Peach and Chamomile mousse:
We simmer 60 ml water with the chamomile buds for 2-3 minutes.


Strecuram ceaiul obtinut si lasam sa se raceasca.
Curatam piersicile de coaja si le zdrobim cu un mixer vertical pana obtinem un suc gros.
We drain the tea and we let it cool.
We peel the peaches and we blend them with a vertical blender until we obtain a thick juice.


 Adaugam 40 g de zahar si ceaiul de musetel si amestecam. Dizolvam 10 g de gelatina conform instructiunilor de pe pachet si o incorporam in sucul de piersici.
We add 40 g sugar and the chamomile tea to the juice and we stir. We dissolve 10 g of gelatine according to the instructions on the package and we gently add it to the juice.


Mixam 250 ml frisca si cand frisca s-a intarit adaugam si sucul de piersici, amestecand usor cu o lingura. O dam la frigider pt 10 minute sa se intareasca putin.
We whip 250 ml of cream and when it's whipped we add the peach juice, gently stirring with a spoon. We place it in the fridge for 10 minutes so it thickens a little.  


Punem mousse-ul de piersici peste blatul de tort racit in tava in care l-am copt. Punem tava in frigider pana cand facem mousse-ul de mure.
We place the peach mousse on top of the sponge cake. We place it in the fridge until we make the blackberry mousse.


Mousse de mure:
 Zdrobim murele cu un mixer si sucul obtinut cu 40 de g zahar il punem la foc mic pentru 5 minute. Dupa aceea dam prin strecuratoare sosul pentru a indeparta samburii si adaugam cele 10 g de gelatina dizolvata si amestecam usor. Lasam sa se raceasca complet.
Blackberry mousse:
We smash the blackberries with the blender and we place the juice in a small pot on low heat, adding 40 g of sugar and we let it simmer for 5 minutes. After that we drain the juice using a sieve so we remove the seeds and we add the 10 g of gelatine already dissolved. We mix gently and we let it cool completely.


Mixam 250 ml frisca ramasa si cand e tare adaugam sosul de mure amestecand usor cu o lingura.
We whip the cream and when it's whipped we add the blackberry sauce gently mixing with a spoon.


Mousse-ul il punem deasupra in tava peste mousse-ul de piersici si nivelam frumos. Dam la frigider pentru 3-4 ore. Eu am ornat tortul simplu cu mure si piersici.
We pour the mousse on top of the peach mousse and we level it nicely. We place the cake in the fridge for 3-4 hours. I decorated the cake very simple with blackberries and peach.


O felie delicioasa si colorata/ A delicious and colorful slice:


Inca una/ One more


Mai de aproape :)/Closer :) Bon appetit!!!

Tort cu mousse de dulce de leche si cocos (Coconut and Dulce de Leche Mousse Cake)

Share


   
         De mult timp tot planuiesc sa fac un tort care sa combine Dulce de Leche cu Cocos, caci imi plac tare mult amandoua si acum i-a venit randul :) Combinatia intre cele doua tipuri de mousse e deosebit de placuta, foarte usoara si aromata, exact cum credeam ca va fi! Va invit pe toti sa-l degustati macar virtual, caci e delicios!
        Cu aceasta reteta particip din nou la provocarea "Dulce Romanie" de luna Mai, unde deja am primit multe retete frumoase si interesante, si unde va astept in continuare cu retete pe cele care nu ati apucat inca sa-mi trimiteti. Deadline-ul este peste 3 zile. Si acum reteta...
        I've been meaning to make this cake that would combine Dulce de Leche and Coconut for a long time now, because I love both their flavours :) The combination between these 2 mousses is really delicious, very light and flavourful, exactly how I thought they would turn out to be! I invite you all to take a virtual bite, because it's divine!
        With this recipe I'm participating at May's "Sweet Romania" challenge, where I already received many beautiful and interesting recipes, and where I'm still waiting for recipes from those of you who didn't had a chance to send them yet. The deadline is in 3 days. And now let's see the recipe...

(vezi reteta aici/see recipe here):
 6 oua/6 eggs
 6 linguri zahar/6 tablespoons with sugar
 6 linguri faina/6 tablespoons with cake flour
 1/2 lingurita praf de copt/1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Mousse de cocos/ Coconut mousse:
 200 ml lapte de cocos/200 ml coconut milk
 100 g fulgi de cocos mici/100 g coconut small flakes
 1 plic gelatina/1 gelatin sachet
 2 linguri de zahar/2 tablespoons with sugar
 200 ml frisca/200 ml cream

Mousse de dulce de leche/ Dulce de Leche Mousse:
 150 g dulce de leche/150 g dulce de leche

Pt decor/For decorating:
 200 ml frisca/200 ml cream
 100 g fulgi de cocos/100 g coconut flakes
 1 lingura dulce de leche/1 tablespoon dulce de leche
  
Cum se face/How it's made:   


Mai intai se face un blat de tort cu ingredientele de mai sus, puteti sa vedeti reteta mea de pandispan daca dati click pe link-ul pus acolo. Cand blatul de tort e rece, il taiem in 3 felii.
We first make a sponge cake with the ingredients above, you can follow my recipe by clicking the link I've put there.  When the sponge cake is cold we slice it in 3 layers.


Pt mousse-ul de cocos/For the coconut mousse:
Intr-o craticioara punem laptele de cocos cu zaharul si fulgii de cocos, amestecam si punem la foc mic sa fiarba pentru 2 minute pana se ingroasa putin.
In a small pot we put the coconut milk, sugar and coconut flakes, we stir and we let it boil on low heat for 2 minutes, so it thickens a little.




Preparam gelatina conform instructiunilor de pe pachet si cand crema de cocos e rece, adaugam gelatina si amestecam bine.
We prepare the gelatin following the instructions we have on the package and when the coconut cream is cold, we add the gelatin and we mix it well.




Batem frisca foarte bine (ca sa se bata bine, tineti 5 minute in congelator bolul si paletele de la mixer), si apoi punem cate putin din crema de cocos, pana o incorporam pe toata.
We whip the cream very well (as a tip, you can put the bowl with the mixer batters in the fridge for 5 minutes) and after that we add coconut cream until we mix it all.




Punem mousse-ul de cocos la rece/ We place the coconut mousse in the fridge.


Pt mousse-ul de dulce de leche/For the Dulce de Leche Mousse:
Preparam gelatina conform instructiunilor si o adaugam la dulcele de leche, amestecand bine. Batem frisca foarte bine si apoi incorporam dulcele de leche.
We prepare the gelatin  and we mix it with the dulce de leche. We whip the cream and after that we fold the dulce de leche into the cream.




Cand e gata, o punem in frigider pentru 5 minute.
When the mousse is finished, we place it in the fridge for 5 minutes.




Incepem sa asamblam tortul astfel/We start to assembly the cake:
  Tapetam tava in care am copt blatul cu folie transparenta si punem prima felie de blat. Insiropam cu putin lapte de cocos si punem mousse-ul de dulce de leche.
  We place foil in the cake pan that we baked the sponge cake and we place one cake sheet moistened with coconut milk.




Intindem foarte bine si punem deasupra a doua felie de blat, iar peste mousse-ul de cocos.
We level it nicely and we place the second cake layer, and on top the coconut mousse.



Intindem frumos mousse-ul si punem a treia foaie de blat. Acoperim cu folie si dam la frigider pentru cel putin 4 ore.
We level the mousse nicely and we place the third cake layer. We cover the pan with foil and we place the cake in the fridge for at least 4 hours.




Pentru decor/For decorating:
Punem fulgii de cocos intr-un strat uniform intr-o tava si dam la cuptor la 175 grade pentru 7 minute. Aveti grija ca se prajesc foarte repede. Puteti sa-i lasati neprajiti daca va place.
We place the coconut flakes in an even layer in a baking pan and we place the pan in the oven at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Be careful because they get toasted easily.You can decorate the cake with coconut flakes without toasting them if you prefer.



Batem frisca bine, adaugam putin zahar si o intindem peste tort. Cand fulgii de cocos s-au racit de tot, ii lipim pe marginile tortului de jur imprejur. Eu am pus deasupra si niste stropi mici de dulce de leche, pe care i-am taiat cu o scobitoare.  Voilà!
We whip the cream and we place it on the cake, covering it nicely. When the coconut flakes are cold we place them on the cake sides, all around. I've also put some dulce de leche drops, which I've "cut" with a wooden toothpick for design. And Voilà!




Si o sectiune cu o felie...
And a section with a slice...




Si o felie pentru voi cu toata dragostea mea! Mousse-ul de dulce de leche mi-a placut mai mult decat cea de cocos, este atat de fina incat nu te poti opri din mancat :) Bon appetit prieteni dragi!
And a slice for you with all my love! I've found the dulce de leche mousse more delicious that the coconut one, it has such a beautiful flavor that you just can't stop eating :) Bon appetit mes amis!

Tort egiptean (Egyptian Cake)

Share




             Astazi este o zi speciala pentru mine fiindca eu si sotul meu sarbatorim 4 ani de cand ne-am casatorit!!! Poate unora li se pare mult, pentru noi insa a trecut foarte repede acest timp, am trait multe experiente frumoase si o iubire cum sper sa cunoasteti toti in viata aceasta, iubire pentru care ii multumesc lui Dumnezeu in fiecare zi!
             Cum sotului meu i-a placut acest tort, am zis ca e o foarte buna ocazie sa il refac de ziua noastra :) Reteta este preluata de pe blogul Amaliei, careia ii multumesc!
             Today is a special day for me because me and my husband celebrate 4 years of marriage!!! Maybe for some people that's a lot of time, but for us that time just flew so fast, we shared a lot of beautiful experiences and a true love, a love that I wish all of you will know in this life, a love that I thank God every day for it!
           Since my husband loved this cake, I thought it's a good occasion to do it for our anniversary :)
The recipe is taken from Amalia's blog, who I have to thank for!


Ingrediente/Ingredients:

 Pt o foaie (ne trebuie 3 foi)/For a layer(we need 3):
   2 albusuri/2 egg whites
   2 linguri zahar/2 tablespoons sugar
   0.5 linguri faina/0.5 tablespoons flour
   40 g alune macinate/40 g ground hazelnuts (cashews)

Pt crema 1/For cream number1:
   6 galbenusuri/6 egg yolks
   6 linguri zahar/6 tablespoons sugar
   340 ml lapte/340 ml milk
   2 linguri faina/2 tablespoons flour
   170 g unt (la temp camerei)/170 g butter (at room temperature)
    vanilie/vanilla

Pt crema 2/For cream number 2:
    250 ml frisca lichida/250 ml cream
    150 g zahar/150 g sugar
    120 g alune zdrobite bucati mai mari/120 g chopped hazelnuts

Pt decor/For decorating:
    250 ml frisca/250 ml cream
    50 g ciocolata alba/50 g white chocolate
    picaturi de zahar ars/caramel drops

Cum se face/How it's made:


Mai intai ne ocupam de foi. Maruntim 40 g nuci caju pentru prima foaie.
We start making the cake sheets. We mince 40 g of nuts very well.


Separam 2 albusuri de galbenusuri si batem albusurile spuma cu 2 linguri zahar. Adaugam alunele macinate amestecate cu faina si incorporam in bezea.
We separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and we beat the egg whites very well, adding the sugar one tablespoon at a time. We add the minced nuts mixed with the flour, folding them in the batter.



 Tapetam fundul unei tavi de copt cu diametrul de 24 cm cu hartie de copt (eu am pus staniol, dar va sugerez hartia de copt sa nu se lipeasca foile) si nivelam bezeaua pe forma. Punem in cuptorul preincins la 160 grade pentru 20-25 minute.
Intre timp, spalam ustensilele si ne apucam de a doua foaie, in total sunt 3 foi.
We put baking paper on the bottom of a 24cm round cake pan and we add the batter, flattening it nicely.
We place it in the preheated oven at 320 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile we wash our kitchen tools and start making the second sheet, they're 3 sheets total.


Scoatem din cuptor prima foaie si o punem pe a doua.
When the first sheet is done, we take it out of the oven and we place the second one in.


Dupa ce am terminat cu foile si le-am pus la racit pe un gratar, ne apucam de crema 1.
Amestecam intr-un vas galbenusurile cu zaharul.
When the cake sheets are done, we start preparing cream number 1:
We mix the 6 egg yolks with the sugar.


Adaugam peste galbenusuri laptele si faina si lasam sa fiarba la foc mic, amestecand continuu.
We add the flour and the milk and we place the pot on low heat, stirring continuously.


Crema se va ingrosa treptat pana va deveni ca o budinca.
The cream will start to thicken like a pudding.


Luam de pe foc si lasam sa se raceasca complet. Consistenta cremei va fi asa:
We leave it aside, until it cools off completely. It will look like this:

      
 Mixam untul intr-un bol putin si adaugam cate o lingura din crema de vanilie treptat si mixam, la sfarsit adaugand vanilie.
In a bowl, we beat the butter a little bit and we add one tablespoon at a time from the cooled vanilla cream, until we obtain a nice cream (we add vanilla at the end)

      
 Crema obtinuta o dam la frigider pana ne ocupam de a doua, timp in care se va intari putin.
 We place the bowl in the fridge until we finish cream number 2.


Acum ne apucam de crema 2.
Topim zaharul pe foc mic, pana se caramelizeaza frumos, fara a se arde, si il turnam in strat subtire pe o foaie de copt.
We start making cream no 2:
We caramelize the sugar in a pot and we pour it in a thin layer on a baking paper sheet. 


Lasam zaharul ars sa se raceasca, il rupem bucati si il punem intr-o punga mare care se sigileaza si il batem bine cu sucitorul (cu cat sunt mai mici cu atat e mai bine)
We let it cool down and we take the pieces and place them in a zipper bag. We close the bag and beat the sugar pieces with a a heavy tool, until it's broken in small pieces, the smaller the better.


Zaharul ars zdrobit: (eu am luat cateva "picaturi" mai mari pentru decor)
I've taken some bigger pieces for decorating the cake.


Intr-un bol mixam frisca foarte bine si adaugam alunele zdrobite si zaharul ars.
In a bowl, we beat the cream very well, and we add the caramelized sugar and the chopped nuts and we fold them gently into the cream.


 Crema 2 este gata:
 Cream number 2 is finished:


Scoatem crema 1 de la frigider si ne apucam de asamblat. Foaie + 1/3 crema 1 + 1/3 crema 2, foaie, etc.
Punem o foaie pe un platou si peste intindem 1/3 din crema 1.  
We can start assembling the cake following this rule: 1 sheet of cake, 1/3 of cream no 1, 1/3 of cream no 2, and so on...
We place a cake sheet on a big plate and we put 1/3 of cream no 1 on top.



Intindem 1/3 din crema 2 peste:
We place 1/3 of cream no 2 above:


Repetam actiunea pana cand terminam cu stratul din crema 2.
We repeat these layers until we finish with cream no 2 on top.


Batem optional 250 ml frisca si intindem deasupra. Razuim ciocolata alba si punem picaturile de zahar ars.
We whip the other 250 ml of cream (optional) and we decorate the cake with it, adding white shredded chocolate and "tears" of caramel on top. 


Tortul frumos decorat il dam la frigider pentru minim 6 ore, timp in care zaharul ars se va topi in crema.
We place the nicely decorated cake in the fridge for at least 6 hours, in this time the caramel will slowly melt in the cream.


Sectiune si felie pentru voi:
A section for you:


Si o felie delicioasa de tort ca sa sarbatorim :) Bon appetit si sa fiti iubiti!
And a slice of cake so we can celebrate :) Bon appetit and be loved!
